News 360: France asks its citizens to leave Belarus «without delay» over Ukraine invasion 

The French Foreign Ministry on Monday asked its citizens to leave Belarus “without delay” for security reasons related to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. 

“In the context of the armed offensive launched by Russia against Ukraine and the closure of Belarusian airspace, any travel to Belarus is formally discouraged,” begins the Foreign Ministry statement, which “invites” French citizens to leave that country “without delay” and “by road.” 

“French nationals in Belarus are invited to leave the country without delay by road, through the control crossings with the Lithuanian, Polish or Latvian borders. If necessary, passengers arriving by air should apply for an exit visa to the services of the Belarusian Ministry of the Interior,” reads the Foreign Affairs alert.
